Billy Sewell

Sergeant (Ret'd) - Royal Marines

The charity was formed after Billy shared his incredible story with the founder after a chance meeting. Having been shot multiple times during operations in Afghanistan he had lost a leg, suffered severe abdominal trauma (requiring 87 units in blood transfusions) and spent 2 weeks in a coma.

He had lost the career he loved, which supported his family and he had no idea what the future held, except for a distant dream that he wanted to fly.

Fast forward several years and, thanks to funding from his unit association and WFW, as well as a great deal of his own hard work and Billy is living that dream.

Cutting his teeth flying heavy-lift helicopters to oil-rigs and ships in the North Sea, he has since progressed to become the Chief Pilot of a busy Florida-based flight school and is back enjoying life again. This is the reason we do what we do!
